Galpin Auto Sports and Henrik Fisker Rocket, 2014 Los Angeles Auto ShowEnlarge Photo
The 2014 Los Angeles Auto Show is now over, at least when it comes to new model debuts, but you can relive some of the highlights in our latest top photos post. First up is the 725-horsepower Rocket
, a carbon fiber-bodied 2015 Ford Mustang designed by Henrik Fisker and built by Galpin Auto Sports.
Lexus LF-C2 Concept Convertible - 2014 Los Angeles Auto Show live photosEnlarge Photo
Another star in L.A. this week was the Lexus LF-C2 concept
, essentially an RC F coupe minus its roof. Lexus hasn’t confirmed a convertible version of its RC just yet but the LF-C2 shows that such a car would be quite the stunner.
Audi’s forward-looking Prologue concept
finally made its debut this week, and as expected it took the form of a large, luxurious coupe. There are no plans at present to put the Prologue into production but the look previewed by the concept will appear on Audi’s next generation of cars, starting with the new A8.
2016 Cadillac ATS-V Coupe, 2014 Los Angeles Auto ShowEnlarge Photo
Sure to be a massive hit in the sales race is the all-new 2016 Cadillac ATS-V
. Available in coupe or sedan bodystyles, the car is the rival to the BMW M3/M4 duo and has managed to bring a 455-horsepower twin-turbocharged 3.6-liter V-6 to the fight.
If you prefer your performance cars with a German flavor, Volkswagen had two different versions of its Golf R on display in L.A. One of these we’re getting, the 2015 Golf R hatch
, but the other, the Golf R Variant wagon
, was purely a tease.
2016 Toyota Mirai hydrogen fuel-cell car, Newport Beach, CA, Nov 2014Enlarge Photo
Toyota has confirmed that its hydrogen-powered fuel cell vehicle due in showrooms next year will be called the Mirai
, and we got our first look at it in L.A. this week. But it won’t be the only new fuel cell vehicle on the market for very long as Honda has also confirmed a successor for its FCX Clarity
for launch in 2016.
The Volkswagen Group had two of its own fuel cell vehicles in L.A., the VW Golf SportWagen HyMotion
and the Audi A7 h-tron quattro
. Although concepts, both could be put into production should the market demand it. The Audi is particularly cool as it’s also got an all-wheel-drive system, plug-in tech and even a forced-induction system!
2016 Mercedes-Maybach S-Class, 2014 Los Angeles Auto ShowEnlarge Photo
It’s time to dust off those old Rick Ross CDs because Maybach is back! Well, not completely as the former ultra-luxury brand is now a sub-brand of Mercedes-Benz called Mercedes-Maybach. Its first product is a stretched version of the S-Class
that comes with an opulent four-seat layout and zero plastic surfaces in the cabin.
2015 Chrysler 300 unveiled at 2014 Los Angeles Auto ShowEnlarge Photo
Chrysler’s 300 sedan has undergone a mid-cycle update and was shown this week in its 300S and 300C Platinum trim lines
. The exterior of the vehicle may not have changed much but inside there are a number of worthy updates. Sadly, the high-performance SRT version is no longer available.
Last but certainly not least is the 2016 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350
. It turns out all the rumors were true as the car is not only called a GT350 but it also packs a new naturally-aspirated 5.2-liter V-8 with a flat-plane crank. Final numbers are yet to be confirmed but we’ve been told to expect more than 500 horsepower.
